Philipse Manor Hall building

Plan Your Visit

Philipse Manor Hall State Historic Site welcomes everyone to our beautiful little park in the heart of downtown Yonkers. Just blocks from the Yonkers waterfront, Philipse Manor Hall was used by four generations of Philipse family members, their neighboring tenant farmers, and the enslaved people who worked in the house, on the property, and at the mills. Built next to the Nepperhan River near the Hudson, this site was for thousands of years home to a Munsee Lunaape fishing village called Nappeckamack. Learn about Our Whole History in the restored house with its brand-new exhibits about the confluence of cultures in Colonial New York.
